    Hey guys right now I have a bull bar with piaas,that has to go after I seen these bumpers on here. I don't do much hardcore offloading but I love the look of the black bumper. Also my 35's rub on turns like a baby crying for food. Please help me with advice and what's out there as far as bumpers. Pics would help. Also will the bumper stop my rubbing? Thanks guys hope to hear all good post.

    See build thread.
    its probably going to take more than a new bumper to stop the rubbing of your 35s.

    all-pro and relentless make nice looking off-road bumpers.

    Go ARB, love it and mounts easily. Also went with the 886's up front and the full OME suspension. Not sure as far as the 35's go though.

    I already have a 6 inch lift. So I'm good on suspension.

    I have to take out the inner plastic in the wheel well. It only rubs on hard turns. Like if I cut the wheel all the way I'll hear the rubbing

    Thanks. Front plate came from Ebay. Crye Precision also makes a T-shirt.

    How was the install on that ARB? Just bolt on right? How about adding the stock fog lights? I'm thinking about getting the same thing. You planning on adding a wench soon? I'm looking at wenches right now but I don't know what to get. 8,000lbs... 12,000lbs... idk takes some research i guess...

    I like the relentless one too but I wish it had a option for a bull bar up top all the way around...

    Humm good to know. I'm looking for something that will push branches and stuff away from my body as I'm passing through. Kinda like a slider for the quarter panels. I might have to send relentless a PM...

    Well i'm thinking more of a front bumper with a kick out. Humm let me find a pic. Just looked at Relentlesses bumper though. I like it! Wish it was easier to just show a pic of what i have in my head ya know? I don't have sliders either but i'm planning on adding both at the same time!

    I went with the ARB deluxe, and LOVE it! I was not sure about the arb until I saw it in person. It was a simple install, my 15yr old son and I had it on in about 2-3 hours. I stuffed a Warn 8000 winch in there and run 885 springs, gave me the look I wanted. I paid 800.00 shipped to my door through 4wheelparts.com. I vote ARB, you wont regret the ARB. IMO.[​IMG]

    I have pulled out an f150 that was buried and his truck alone probably weighed 7000+. I have used warn 8000 winches on my other crawlers and have never had a problem with any of them. I personally don't think you'll need more than an 8000lb winch, unless you plan on pulling out all those stuck Chevy's, Ford's, or Dodge's...;) I like the m8000 winch, never had an issue with it not being enough.
